Can't seem to get rid of you your painful infected ingrown toenail even after seeing the doctors a few time and taken a few courses of antibiotics? Maybe it's time to have them dealt with once and for all!
A podiatrist is trained to perform nail surgery to help remove the offending part of the nail permanently.
The procedure will be done under local anaesthetic and in a sterilized field. The offending section of the nail will be cut away with a special instrument to avoid cutting any skin to minimize infection and allows for faster healing. A chemical will then be introduced to the nail root to kill the root off permanently, this way, no new nail can grow out from tere again.
It is is minor procedure, highly effective, low risk, fast healing time compared to open surgery, and best of all - you only need to have it done once!
